My favorite PC shmup!!
Update 9/23/2010: It's back! One on the best shmups from the 90s era is back in the AppStore! Get it while it's hot!! Would be great to add in iOS multitasking as well as sharper graphics. But still, it doesn't detract from this awesome game.
Wow, I loved Tyrian (and later Tyrian 2000) back in the day. It's an incredible shmup with a lot of depth, thanks to an extensive weapon power-up system. On my 3GS, it plays well, looks great, and brings back fond fond memories. Great port! The only thing more I could ask for would be better (and louder) sound. The music sounds very compressed, making the quality inferior to the original and other iPhone games as well. Otherwise, I could not be happier that one of my favorite PC shmups has made it onto my phone! Thank you!!
